I just caught my dogs off a big swamper at 12:15 pm. They jumped that rascal almost as soon as they hit the ground at 10:30 am. and he circled like cottontail for about 3 rounds then he would kind of come and go in a much larger pattern. They didn't want to quit when I stopped them but it was starting to get a little warm at least on me. I started not to catch them because I saw the rabbit cross into the creek bottom that joins my property and I really wanted to listen to them run in those open woods with no thickets.

I'll tell what I have really had a good time running the dogs this season and been blessed to have plenty of rabbits to chase. I even saw a rabbit scammpering out of the thicket where the dogs were running that they were not after. I do all of my hunting on the outside so when I see extra rabbits this is very good.

I hope all of you fellows have had a great season and continue to have good running.

I've heard tell of some excellent cat races. I am very fortunate to have as many rabbits to run both Cottontail and Swampers right here on my place. Maybe someday I can build a good rabbit fence around 40 to 60 acres of it. I'm going to do my best to enhance it for running rabbits as much as I can and as the money and time permits.

See I look at it like this. I may not be able to squirrel or racoon hunt as much as I used to someday but I can certainly sit in a lawn chair and listen to the dogs run and since I already know how much I like it this is a no brainer for me.
